The Passport Office is reminding Cayman Islands passport holders to check their passports and visas to ensure they are valid in advance of making travel arrangements.
Persons travelling to the United States of America on Cayman Islands passports are required to ensure that their passports are valid for at least six months beyond the date of intended departure from USA.
During the summer peak period, the time required to issue a Cayman Islands passport (new or renewal) is three working weeks, while the processing of applications for United States visa-waiver takes three working days. Visa-waivers cannot be issued to passport holders whose police record list criminal convictions.
Once travel documents have been filed with the Cayman Islands Passport Office and a date and time for collection has been arranged, applicants must ensure that the documents are collected at the pre-arranged date and time.
The Cayman Islands Passport Office is open to the public on weekdays between the hours of 9am to 3pm. The public is also advised that staff from the Passport Office will not be visiting the Passport Office after hours or on weekends to assist persons with expired travel documents or for the collection of documents.
